2017 Bookshelf

2017 book collage

In November of 2014, I read a blog post encouraging persons to set aside a bookshelf for all the books read in a calendar year. As the year goes by, you see the shelf filling and are reminded of time well spent. (I wish I could remember who to thank.)

The project was so rewarding in 2015, I continued it in 2016 and now 2017. I again and again find the process of adding books enjoyable and helpful. Sometimes you forget a really good book.

Helpful hints-

  • If you read most of your books electronically, consider setting up a virtual bookshelf on Pinterest.
  • Another option is to set up a profile on Goodreads. Be sure to fill in a start and end date for each book you complete.
  • This year’s list includes books I read and books I listened to while traveling. There are wonderful, free audible books available through your local library and via streaming if you subscribe to Amazon Prime.

So my friends, here’s my 2017 bookshelf. I hope it encourages you and that you find a treasure or two. Should it be helpful to you, I’m glad to provide more feedback on specific selections. Just leave a comment below.

Happy reading. Happy exploring. Happy growing. – Lisa <><
